 What is GTL?

Leadership Skill Development
I am already engaging in so many ways that I never have before and look forward to being part of good works moving forward. -Michele Murphy

GTL offers a dynamic class that teaches a nationally recognized leadership curriculum coupled with immersive field experiences in a breadth of local issues. The class meets once a month, with each meeting emphasizing a particular community issue. The class may visit Flandrau Science Center and a water treatment plant on Environment Day, or take a tour of Border Patrol HQ and the Mexican border on Border Day. Each issue day is tailored to educate class members on a key community issue, and to open avenues for class members to connect to and serve the community in relation to those issues.

Community Outreach
GTL has changed the way I think about community development and what it takes to start community development, and how small actions can lead to larger actions and become the change people want to see. -Nathan Rothschild

class project 1The goal fostered by the GTL program is to continue to develop and improve the community around us.  Each year, the GTL class commits to a community project.  The class of 2015 opted to help the underserved Hiaki High School.  The class volunteered over 800 hours and raised over $12,000 in order to host 22 career day presentations and to help the school develop a beautiful community garden which has become a point of pride and inspiration for its students.
